CSF Committees

 

The Commercial Spaceflight Federation has seven committees, made up by our members and staff, that are working to address the most pressing issues facing the industry today and in the future. Participation in any of these committees is open to both Executive and Associate members.

Export Control

Members work with industry experts and representatives from a variety of  government agencies (including The Departments of State and Commerce) to promote modernization of Export Control policy and procedures in regards to the commercial space industry.  The committee aims to assist American companies to remain competitive leaders in the global market and to advance innovation and technology overall. The committee also serves as a point of reference for adherence to current legislation and policy.

For more information or to sign up for the committee, please contact Jane Kinney at jane@commercialspaceflight.org.

Funding

Members work to secure funding for the major governmental space agencies, NASA and FAA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation (AST). They monitor the budget requests of these agencies and work with legislative and executive contacts to ensure lack of funding does not impede the advancement of the commercial space sector.

Standards
